You can always squeeze more density onto the land, but the current 10 lot layout probably doesn't work for a more dense development.   Not positive about Langford but most municipality's don't allow separate titles to shared laterals for DW, SS, or SD and they also require that Hydro, TELUS, Shaw etc. be installed underground.   If the lots are free hold then you probably have to dig up all the infrastructure to move the new road and/or put in more services. If you go strata then you would also have to dig everything up to put in one larger service to a central location. 

 

As you noted, Langford may not allow more density than the 10 lots that it likely just recently approved. The ad says the subdivision is nearing registration. If that gets registered before it sells, you would have to reconsolidate the lots and then rezone it again if the zoning doesn't allow more density.  Rezoning it again could add a lot of soft costs including: design costs, application fees, public hearing fees, DCC's etc. 

 

That all takes time.  Given the new council's views on density and current interest rates, I wouldn't pay/carry $4.25M for long unless I was confident of a substantial increase in density. 

 

Yes, well-said.

Potential multi-family redevelopment site centrally located to all forms of transportation and shopping. This high visibility corner property is ready and waiting for Victoria's next residential project to take shape. Property is at the entry to the ''Selkirk and Cecelia Village'' area and is part of the vibrant Burnside Gorge Community. Preliminary discussions have indicated a desire to have this property rezoned to a higher and better use (up to four stories and 16 residential units) that create either market-rent housing or owner occupied strata units. Owner may consider offers subject to rezoning approval.

This is a rare opportunity to get in on a Victoria core with redevelopment potential and be a great holding property or an excellent location to run your own business. The zoning allows for live/work, light industry, transient accommodations, office, and limited retail use and is one of the last undeveloped properties in an area already surrounded by other businesses. Properties like this are rare and the savvy investor will be able to make money here. This 5-bedroom property went through an extensive renovation in 2015 including a new foundation and roof. Rooms are rented individually and with two recent vacancies, there is potential for more revenue depending on the purchaser's plans. Collect rent while you finalize your development plans or keep this in your long-term rental portfolio. Extremely low maintenance backyard and great tenants make this a low effort, high return rental.

Residents fear $9.9M Saanich property touted as ‘massive’ future development opportunity

 

Property sits close to iconic restaurant that’s also for sale

 

https://www.vicnews....nt-opportunity/

 

 

1 resident, to be precise.  That doesn't live nearby.  And a few "walkers" that would not give their names.  

 

 

 

 

 

The four lots, however, are just down the road from an actual business, the Beach House Restaurant – so there’s a precedent for commercial businesses in the neighbourhood.
